News Flash: Gays Trying To Nail Christians…To The Cross

April 25th, 2008 | by Daniel DiRito |

Have a seat, take a deep breath, and then watch the following video of Christian leaders assailing militant homosexuals and portraying themselves as victims of those who are seeking to undo all measures of morality. All that’s missing from this piece of persecution propaganda is a wooden cross and the hammer needed to nail themselves to it. No doubt this is an attempt to demonstrate the degree to which they are being decimated by diabolical drag queens hell bent on effecting a holocaust on the holier than thou. Man your battle stations folks…the gays are coming.

I find screeds of this nature quite amusing in light of the concurrent efforts to stereotype gays as effeminate fairies who are gender challenged. Then again, why would one expect a gaggle of ‘good old boys’ to cease their efforts to maintain their long standing misogynistic masquerade. Apparently gays provide them with a multitude of targets. On the one hand, they can portray gays as militaristic monsters, and on the other, they can castigate them as nefarious Nelly’s. Yes, these and other aspersions are an effective means of attaching antagonistic archetypes to their ardent enemy.

One things for sure, these folks are rather adept at crafting catch phrases and interjecting derogatory imagery meant to mobilize their minions. Note some of the one’s they utilize in this short video - sexual politics, militant homosexual agenda, right of conscience, suppress, silenced, religious liberty, God’s standard, dominance, second class citizen, clash, totalitarian regime, Nazi Germany, concentration camp, intimidation, beat into submission, discrimination on steroids, radical, hammer of the state, Taliban, authoritarian, and fascist.

Who would have thought that men of God would be so skilled at inciting anger and animosity. Then again, these megalomaniacs probably think a crusade is just what they need to advance their Christian charade…as well as making certain the cash cow doesn’t dry up. Fomenting their flocks with fear reminds me of another evangelical instigator…the one ensconced in the White House.

Honestly, these people are exasperating. Their willingness to use selective comprehension to cherry pick Christ’s message is not only disingenuous; it is an abrogation of his authenticity.

These rabble rousers might find themselves on the outside looking in when their magical moment of Rapture arrives. After all, whose to say God won’t prefer to populate heaven with a group of gays that demonstrated the power and persistence to bring the ‘good old boys’ to their knees. Besides, God must already know that most of these men are a six pack of beer away from crossing over to the other side…if you know what I mean.

    Fuck the Christians and the Jews and the Muslims. And all their stumbling, muttering bullshit of “believe in me or die” bullshit.

    Who the fuck are these motherfuckers to speak of morality when half of their members are suppressing their sexual urges to have sex with children. Refuse to come to terms that they like men. And I’m sure a minority of them look at their pets and find themselves sexually aroused.

    One word, assholes!!!!

    Well, at least there’s freedom of speech for both sides of the issue at schools. Kudos to the ACLU for supporting the student’s right to wear a tee shirt expressing his opinion. Schools have got to be taught that they cannot allow expression of one view point on an issue and suppress another.

    I know this is somewhat tangential but there doesn’t seem to be any fora where non-official BIO! team bloggers to post so I’m forced to try to find blog posts where things I’d like to say are at least somewhat relevant. This is the closest I could find for a link to a court decision allowing a student to express non-pro-gay sentiment.

    No, I don’t think the principle of this school who contemplated punishing the student if he wore this tee-shirt is attempting to crucify Christians. I just think he’s trying to suppress free speech in contradiction of current Supreme Court precedents and he ought not to be allowed to get away with it.

    The rule of thumb is, if you allow the expression of one point of view on an issue, you must allow other points of view to be expressed. If you think that will lead to disruption, then you must not allow ANY expression on that point of view. The solution is never to suppress one point of view while allowing others.

    As with all rules of thumb, this one has exceptions. I don’t think that a tee shirt saying something to the effect of, “Death to Gays” or advocating violence against homosexuals in any way should be allowed and anyone advocating such sentiments should be punished, regardless of whether expressions of pro-gay opinions are allowed.

    So what is the point here, that the half (to concede, for the sake of argument, what appears to be a totally unsupported exaggeration) who DON’T have such urges are to be fucked, too (by the way, what does that even mean? That they are to be ignored or what?)? And what of those Christans who ARE suppressing such urges? They are immoral? Sorry, I don’t get it. I mean, if they AREN’T suppressing such urges but EXPRESSING them by raping/molesting kids, clearly they ARE immoral but one who SUPPRESSES such urges isn’t immoral, as the fact that he is suppressing them proves beyond any doubt. In fact, I would argue that such a one is MORE moral than one who has no such urges since such a one recognizes that such urges are wrong/sinful and must be suppressed whereas one with no such urges doesn’t have to deal with the issue at all on a moral level with regard to his own life; the latter’s moral judgment against child molestation is, personally, totally costless.

    I don’t get that comment at all. It makes no sense to me.

    Furthermore, it makes no sense to me because Christians universally consider pedophilia to be a sin. Even those Roman Catholic Church leaders who hushed up and moved around priests who molested kids considered such actions to be sinful. They were absolutely wrong to keep such priests in the priesthood, to shield them from prosecution, to cover up their actions and to move them to new parishes without even so much as a warning of their previous behavior but pedophilic actions were never considered to be moral behavior. The outrage among Catholics when the pedophile priest problem first became public is proof of this.

    Hey if they don’t want homosexuals as part of their religion, that is fine. Employment discrimination & the marriage issues are another( it is alright for them to deny it but they have no business telling the state to deny it).

    Based on their words, if you church is against blacks, italians, or any other ethnic group they should be able to discriminate against them

    Actually, all the recent discrimination bills have exempted churches and religious speech, so these scumbags in the video are lying.

    Look, the Victim Mantality is a powerful tool. To keep people united, find a common ebnemy, here it’s gays, and say that they are oppressing you. Now, of course, Christians are not really in any conceivable way victimized by gays or anyone else. Christians are the vast maority of the population. But this game still works. Look at the way misogynists and racists have portrayed White Men as somehow victimized by EOC or AA. They’re not victims by any erasonable standard, but making them feel like victims gets them riled up and united, easy to divert into other posiitions like repealing the inheritance tax or launching colonial wars for profit. It’s one of the oldest games in the book.

    Craig, if one supresses their natural sexual urges, there is the possiblity they will act out in abnormal ways. Such is the case with the priest scandals. When you force yourself to behave unnaturally your brain will find another outlet for it’s natural needs. Thus Christian sexual morays CAUSE child abuse - just look at the recent Texas story.

    Jersey,

    I don’t know what you mean by the “recent Texas story.” I guess I missed that.

    My point is, there simply is no way for those who have such urges to express them in a moral or legal manner. The only good alternate, of which I am aware, is talk-therapy. By admitting to another, non-judgmental human being that one has such urges, one can face them rather than suppress them. As it happens, this is the very alternative that I personally favor.

    Alternatives that also are available, but which are probably have dangers of their own are availing oneself of text stories involving children. As long as it remains in one’s head and is a solitary affair, this is definitely superior to acting out one’s fantasies. The danger, of course, is that people who feed their fantasies involving children and sex will act out on those fantasies, ultimately finding the stories and masturbation to be insufficiently satisfying.

    Or are you advocating the legalization of pedophilia? Surely not. I’ve been on the receiving end of pedophilia. Trust me. It fucks with body, mind, and soul. Yes, I know that, in the past, and even in some societies in the present, girls as young as 12 have been considered to be of marriageable age. I suggest, however, that, history aside, such practices were harmful to such girls in ways that men of that time and society were unaware and about which they were unconcerned. I don’t think that going back to an age where 40 year old men marry twelve year old girls is something that we should be going back to.

    Fact is, we live in a world where people are a complex mixture of desires, not all of which are good or healthy for full, overt expression. I suggest that, Christian mores or no, pedophilia is one of those. I would prefer that the Church would be open to steering pedophiles to professional therapeutic help rather than just to hell.

    Daniel, my gaydar is not very good, even though i have a gay son. however in watching the clip i got the exact same feeling as expressed in your final thought.

    by the way, this is just a group of scared religious nuts who sold out to the neocons in the past and encouraged their flocks to vote against their own economic self interest. Now some of the flock have realized the error of their ways and looking for guidance from other sources. this event was one of throwing red meat to the hardcore who some poles suggest may have lost interest in voting.

    Craig - let’s run down the priest scandal for example:

    Boy is gay

    Boy grows up in orthodox Catholic fmaily

    Boy hides being gay but it’s extremely difficult

    Boy grows up, becomes a man

    Man becomes priest - what better way to make family happy and deal with sexual urges?

    Man is surrounded by young trusting boys…

    Do you see where I’m going with this? It’s seems so plainly obvious to me that I just want to assault people with a jackhammer when they don’t get it. ;)

    Jersey,

    There’s no connection between being gay and being a pedophile. Sorry. None. At all. Period. Pedophiles tend to be heterosexuals in life. They may show a preference for one gender of child but most are not particularly picky. It is the youth that they are attracted to, the innocence, the vulnerability.

    Gayness is about gender-centered attraction. Pedophilia is about age-centered attraction. So then, your run-down has nothing to do with the priest scandal.

    How about this: pedophile knows that priests work closely with children, often alone and with parent-reinforced authority, giving them, they know, lots of time to work on the children, to get them to do sexual stuff. The trust is already built in. The family trusts the priest and communicates that trust to their children along with the sense that what the priest says is true and must be obeyed or else one’s soul is endangered. Therefore, the priesthood is seen by pedophiles as a thoroughly attractive vocation for carrying out their particular fantasies.

    It is the situation of priesthood that attracts pedophiles; not, in my opinion, Christianity or its mores that creates pedophiles. Of course, it only helps that the pedophile knew that the seal of the confessional was absolute by Roman Catholic canon law. All of this worked to making pedophilia very easy to carry out and unlikely to come out.

    But your whole “Boy is gay”, “Boy grows up, become a man” thing is bullshit. Pure and simple.

    Of course, the situation of priesthood also attracts gays. Namely, not allowed to get married (so no having to hide one’s homosexuality with a wife that one isn’t attracted to); men only; often living together in dorm-like sacristies. Lot’s of conferences of men only, and so forth. Easy to find other gay priests and easy to have undetected liaisons. But here’s the thing that refutes your “Boy is gay”, “gay man becomes priest”, “gay man molests children” scenario: there are plenty of gays in the priesthood; gays have no need to turn to children.

    So yeh! I don’t discount the point you’re trying to make. I just disagree with the particulars of your scenario.

    If your point is that the situation of the traditional priesthood is attractive to both gays and pedophiles, I agree with you, 100%. It is.

    Craig you didn’t hear about all those kids taken away at that compound. There were like 400 of them living all together in a polygamist society where they are abused sexually and mentally. There are so many they couldn’t properly match then to their proper birth mothers,many who were born to girls under 18 years old. They don’t keep birth records. It was really more of a cult.
